05/30/2017 Tool, Once And Future Band (Rochester, NY @ Blue Cross Arena)

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Imagine everyone’s surprise when Tool announced a short tour in the Spring of 2017, and Rochester got a date! Naturally I jumped on a ticket to this show as soon as it was announced, and so did everyone else – it allegedly sold out in something like 20 minutes. It had only been 15 years […]

02/28/2017 Big Wreck (Rochester, NY @ Anthology)

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

I have to admit I was baffled that Big Wreck was coming to Rochester. They were also playing Buffalo a couple days later on the tour, so why Rochester too? Not that I was complaining, far less of a drive for me! I also had not yet been to Anthology since it had been remodeled […]

02/26/2017 Mike Doughty (Rochester, NY @ Flour City Station)

Monday, February 27th, 2017

Also known as “Eric and Matt’s Biennial Man-Date Night”. Seriously, early 2012, late 2014, early 2017. The 2008 show kinda messes it up, but you get the idea. Doughty comes around Rochester roughly every other year, and Matt and I always go! This show was supposed to have Wheatus (they of Teenage Dirtbag fame) as […]

02/23/2017 The Tea Party (Buffalo, NY @ Town Ballroom)

Friday, February 24th, 2017

Ah The Tea Party. But not just any Tea Party show this time! The first of a two-night stand at the Ballroom (I couldn’t do both nights, and I heard the 2nd show was just as good as this one), on the Twenty Years of Transmission tour. So instead of us complaining about the same […]

01/28/2017 Will Hoge (Buffalo, NY @ The Studio at Waiting Room)

Sunday, January 29th, 2017

An Eric and Tiff date night! Another trip down to Buffalo, this time we stayed over at my parents house since it was a Saturday night. We made our way down to the Waiting Room on a fairly cold and snowy night, which probably contributed to the sparse attendance. Though few, there were Will Hoge […]

11/22/2016 Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, Sixx A.M. (Rochester, NY @ Blue Cross Arena)

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

[As Lions was first on, didn’t see them.] I missed As Lions, and found Pete and his buddy almost as soon as I got on the floor. We ended up camping out to the left of the soundboard for the entire show; a nice vantage point, no one really around us. I got down there […]

10/11/2016 Hatebreed, DevilDriver, Devil You Know (Buffalo, NY @ Town Ballroom)

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

Talk about a stacked bill! It was awesome to see Devil You Know again, after seeing them in May at Montage. Their list was slightly shorter this time out, and I got to see A New Beginning, which they didn’t play at Montage. Some of the crowd actually knew a couple of the songs, almost […]

09/28/2016 Clutch, Zakk Sabbath, Kyng (Buffalo, NY @ Town Ballroom)

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

This was a legitimate rock show! I’d come to be a pretty big Clutch fan in the last couple years, Zakk Wydle doing his Black Sabbath cover routine as direct support, and some serious hard rockers in Kyng as the first band on? Sign me up. Kyng was very good, a hard driving capital-R Rock […]

08/31/2016 Prophets Of Rage, Wakrat (Niagara Falls, NY @ Rapids Theater)

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

When it was announced that 3/4 of Rage Against The Machine would be getting together with B-Real from Cypress Hill and Chuck D from Public Enemy (along with PE’s DJ Lord, and with Zack de la Rocha’s blessing) as Prophets Of Rage, I know I was excited to see how they would look and sound, […]

07/24/2016 Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, Alter Bridge, Saint Asonia (Darien, NY @ Darien Lake Performing Arts Center)

Monday, July 25th, 2016

As this was going to be my only “big” show of the summer, I splurged for what ended up being 2nd row behind the GA pit. Nice and close. I rolled into Darien, and for a little bit of deja-vu, I actually parked at the Cherry Hill campground, as Bob and Michelle were camping there […]
